David Kelsey has an invincible conviction that life is going to work out just as he has planned it - if he can just fix ´the situation´. His one true love, the brilliant, beautiful Annabelle, has married another man. But that doesn´t mean they can´t still be friends. And even though she is pregnant with her husband Gerald´s baby, that surely doesn´t mean she won´t one day get back together with David. She still loves him, of that he is certain. David is sure she´ll take him back and, under an alias, is setting up a wonderful home for the two of them in a town close by. And everything is just about going to plan until things take a murderous turn, leaving David a desperate man on the run. 1. Language: English. Narrator: William Hope.

Released in 1974, Sweet Home Alabama has become synonymous with Southern rock. From its opening guitar riff, it is instantly recognizable, a raucous, irreverent defense of a Deep South state and its segregationist governor against the jabs of Neil Young. But the roots of Lynyrd Skynyrd´s best-selling anthem go much deeper than regional pride or resentment of a fellow rocker. In this fresh take on the history of an oft-debated rock classic, journalist Jonathan Bernstein traces the tune´s surprising centuries-old origins and incredible global influence, which continues to this day. Sweet Home Everywhere is the story of a song that has enthralled, enraged, and confused listeners for 40 years. Jonathan Bernstein is a freelance music journalist and fact-checker based in New York. His writing has appeared in Oxford American, Rolling Stone, Time, and American Songwriter, among others. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kevin Stillwell.

Bringing hope to all who face impossible situations, this thrilling tale has a simple message: God delights to use the unlikely candidates of this world for his greatest work. There is a purpose to pain, so this book will be a special gift for anyone who has ever asked the question, ´´Why did God let it happen?´´ Furthermore, there is a secret in this book, a unique perspective held in common by all the great saints from the beginning of time. A secret so awesome that when understood is capable of unleashing the power of God in and through even the weakest human life. The tool I have used to convey this transforming perspective on adversity is mentoring relationships. Mentors are renown for imparting a perspective of resilience, turning every adversity into an opportunity for growth and therefore empowering students to transform weak spots to sweet spots. This parable lays hold on the imagery of sports to bring about a greater understanding of spiritual truths. Ace, our central figure, is a hard-core athlete who experiences an irreversible lif-altering tragedy. His life is then transformed from halting bitterness to joyful acceptance through the lessons he learns along the way to becoming an Ironman triathlete. This is not your typical novel. It is modeled intentionally after the literary classic Pilgrim´s Progress, an allegory where the characters embody the qualities suggested by their names. For example, in this story, ´´Buddy´´ is indeed a ´´best friend´´. The idea for the listener is to look for and identify the different types of racers with their various philosophies of preparation. Later, as the race progresses, we´ll discover the outcome of their often flawed approaches. Now you´re ready to take the journey with ´´Ace´´ to become an Ironman triathlete. So go for it. Dive in, and discover through a colorful cast of mentors that the Scriptures are rich in the imagery of sports, and watch the spiritual 1. Language: English. Narrator: Robert Leatherwood.

If you´re at home, then get some logs ready and put on your most comfortable slippers, as we kick things off with Doug Bradley´s well-researched introduction to the authors and stories featured in this volume. Ambrose Bierce brings us ´´The Death of Halpin Frayser´´, an intriguing tale of a young man´s increasingly spooky comings together with his mother, alive and dead. The next story may well be Edgar Allan Poe´s most famous, and it is certainly amongst his best; ´´The Fall of the House of Usher´´ is tour de force of classic horror writing brought to life as only Renegade can do it. Following Poe´s epic masterpiece is ´´How It Happened´´, a short and sweet piece from Arthur Conan Doyle about a runaway car and it´s impact on the narrator´s life. Then, another great story from the imagination of Conan Doyle, ´´Lot No. 249´´. This epic story, at over 80 minutes in length, is the longest we´ve released so far. It is also acknowledged as the story that kicked off the malevolent mummy genre, inspiring many more stories and movies. We round off this volume with Edgar Allan Poe´s beautiful poem ´´For Annie´´, one of our favorites and a lovely, heartbreaking way to bring this volume to a close. So throw those logs on the fire, turn off the lights and settle in to hear some of the worlds best short horror stories, read by one of the worlds best narrators... unless you´re going to listen to the stories in the car, in which case please enjoy while driving safely. 1.
